What are you most proud of? I'm most proud that I was able to bring a favorite from her childhood into her young teen years in one simple outfit. Add leggings and a simple girls' t-shirt and she looks very stylish. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Start the poncho first. It is simple connected chain stitches, edged with a double crochet stitch on the bottom and neckline. Add fringe and you are finished. It is crocheted in the round from the bottom up, decreasing one stitch each row. The skirt takes longer and was done in 3 parts. First the skirt portion, which is double crocheted. The waist band was done separately and is ribbed to allow her to stretch it out to get it on, then it was simple stitched onto the top of the skirt. The ruffle was chained stitched on after the first two portions were done, and finished with a double crocheted edging.
